Loading Events

RICS is delighted to invite you to a Webinar CPD on Development Appraisals, which will be held on 26 February 2020.

This seminar will explain the two distinct approaches to Development Appraisals, examining the key factors involved and the details that should not be overlooked.

The two basic methods of appraisal will be explained:

  1. Residual – to assess land value
  2. Profit – to assess profit level

The calculations involved can be identical but the outcomes different.

The seminar will explain the basics of setting out a calculation and the reason for selecting a Residual or Profit calculation.

The assumptions to be made in an appraisal will be outlined with some of the key sensitivities in the analysis which can create misleading results if they are not taken into account appropriately.

Learning Outcome:

  • How to set out a basic development appraisal for both Residual and Profits calculation
  • The basic elements that are required to complete the appraisal
  • The assumptions that need to be made in making an appraisal
  • The sensitivities in those assumptions
  • The factors that are easily overlooked in appraisals
